Faisalabad Wolves to get visas for CLT20

New Delhi, Sep 13: Pakistan's Faisalabad Wolves players will get visas to participate in this month's Champions League Twenty20 2013 tournament, according to a media report on Friday.


A couple of days back (September 11), the team had been denied visas due to security reasons and the qualifying stage of CLT20 was set to go ahead with only three teams. But now, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has intervened and the team will get the visas today, stated a report on "The Indian Express".

Sources close to the government told the newspaper that the Prime Minister has overruled the Home Ministry's earlier assessment that Faisalabad Wolves faced a security risk in the country.

CLT20's qualifying stage will be played from September 17 in Mohali.

Pakistan's Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq will lead Wolves.
